Semiconductor stocks are an interesting option for anyone interested in growth. For quite some time, semiconductors did really well. But lately, that has not been the case. In fact, if we look at SOXX (SOXX), a popular ETF for semiconductor stocks, then we see that it has essentially been going sideways since late 2017.
The question that some might ask is whether there is another way that is more productive. It is better to gain exposure to semiconductors using an ETF like SOXX or is it better to pick a basket of specific semiconductor companies? To find the answer, we need to take a closer look at SOXX and the semiconductor companies it contains.
